Thorough Chicago Attorneys Defend Against Civil Rights Allegations
Experienced Illinois firm advises government bodies, officials and individual clients
When someone alleges that their civil rights have been violated, a comprehensive legal defense is necessary to challenge spurious claims and minimize potential liability. In situations like these, the knowledgeable attorneys at O'Connor & Battle, LLP provide authoritative counsel to municipalities, law enforcement offices and other defendants. Our detailed understanding of 42 U.S.C. §1983 and the latest developments in civil rights law enables our clients to assess their legal options quickly and confidently.
Strong advocates defend law enforcement officers
As many constitutional protections relate to law enforcement, a large number of civil rights lawsuits allege some sort of police misconduct. We understand how volatile such allegations can be, even when the claims in question are meritless. Our Illinois lawyers stand up for the rights of law enforcement personnel and agencies in administrative proceedings and litigation.
Accomplished lawyers challenge discrimination claims
Discrimination claims not only expose defendants to potential damages, but can harm their public standing. If an individual or organization is being accused of discrimination, our attorneys conduct an exhaustive review of the relevant facts to create an authoritative narrative of what occurred. Whether your matter relates to housing, employment, law enforcement or some other type of action, we will work diligently to reach a successful resolution.
